Yep, I gave you the finger this morning.

You: Didn’t stop at the stop sign or yield to oncoming traffic this morning as I tried to turn left from Arizona Ave. onto Loughboro Rd.

Me: Slamming on brakes. Honking. Giving you the finger. I assume you are always an asshole. What else am I to think?

Both of us: Benefited from the anonymity of traffic and the security afforded us by knowing we would never see each other again.

Was it you? Want to respond to the charge of being a dangerous public nitwit?

    not me. i was a perfect driver at that exact location this morning at8:08 am and further on canal and then bridge. i had to be. it’s not fun to be under “geico wont renew me effective 1-1-08” and “others-said-no-too” scenario. why do you think i learnt biking after all? oh, god. me – future biker from dc to va everyday!

    swearing helps too, i learnt.

    A friend of mine received a somewhat threatening letter in the mail, that was intended for someone else (presumably a previous resident of his house). The writer was someone who the intended recipient had cut off in traffic, and he decided to exhibit passive-aggressive road rage while at the same time, issuing a somewhat veiled threat. The gist of the letter was, “Look how easy it was for me to find out where you live [although he was wrong on that one – ed.], and be glad I’m only just writing you a letter.”

    The moral? Be careful of how you piss off other drivers, no matter how much of an idiot they’re being, because they may be a psycho like this guy and try to hunt you down and slash your tires or throat (or someone else’s). People are nucking futs.

    Good point, Ex-Hy. I almost got into a fight once because I told a guy he wasn’t allowed to park in a handicapped spot. He wanted to throw down right there in the parking lot. I told him I would get him ticketed or towed if he didn’t park legally. What a jerk.

    I watched my back for about an hour after that encounter.
